The Hobart Human Library can also be booked for public or private events, including conferences. The incredible strength and determination of the ‘books’ was humbling, and I was amazed when one of the ‘books’ told me how empowering she finds it to tell her story.
The experience demonstrated how challenging it can be to face discrimination and strengthened my resolve to avoid being judgemental.
The library provides a comfortable space for ‘readers’ to speak informally with a living ‘book’.
The ‘books’ are Tasmanians who have experienced stereotyping, prejudice or discrimination – perhaps because of their culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance or wellness.For schools, the Hobart Human Library workshop has been developed to support the Respectful Schools and Workplaces Framework.For workplaces, the human library is an excellent addition to anti- discrimination and diversity training.Although many of the books in the College library have marginalia these are usually scholarly notes relating to the text.Sometimes, however, there are drawings and doodles as well, which are always a welcome surprise!Documentation of the py Pdf module is available online.
